More about whats gaming
  1. second but id get neither of those rigs because mine is both cheaper and performs better
    http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/iSxn

    -h100 is fisher price watercooling
    -asus video cards are overrated
    -push pull isnt that great temp vs cost ratio
    -haf x is huge and pretty old case design
    -found cheaper ram
    -get my psu from overclockers
  2. Choice 2 my friend.
  3. oh and forgot im going to overclock to 4.5Ghz
  4. i been looking the build 1 and its all most the same as this guys
    http://www.youtube.com/user/TheBferrari
  5. and plays all games with great frame rate
  6. well i overclocked my i7 3770k with 1.15v @ 4.5ghz with a d14 and the temps never rose above 65c

    and in reality there is nearly no performance gain in games with a 4.2ghz chip and a 4.5ghz other than bragging rights which is stupid

    http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/iSC1
  7. build 2 some people keep saying ivy bride runs a lot hotter then sandy bride so mite get the 1st build as my budget is £1500 and is a good system as i have seen on that guys channel i linked :D
  8. going to change both the Asus Video Cards for MSI
  9. Don't get a 660ti. Go with thebigtroll's build or at least get a hd 7950. For a $1000 plus gaming build you should get a gtx 670.
  10. whats wrong with a 660 ti

    whats wrong with a 660 ti


    Nothing its just the gpu is the most important part of a gaming build. So if you can fit a gtx 670 into your budget you should get it.
  12. someone plz tell me whats better 1 or 2 and cooler Lower the temp the better
  13. my build is better. period

    ivy does run hotter according to most people but my friends temps and my temps show otherwise. he gets max 70c when he does a 4.2ghz on a i5 3570k while i get 4.5ghz with 60c max. he has a hyper 212 though

    it doesnt matter if the guy shows his rig. it doesnt prove my build is worse
  14. ok il get the 1 build
  15. my build or his. it is your choice after all. it is your money. its down to how smart you spend it
  16. i like build one because of this channel
    http://www.youtube.com/user/TheBferrari/featured
  17. so you are saying that you are building a inferior rig just because someone else did? what is this?
